I’m sure we’ve all seen by now the “photo op” of President Obama shooting skeet. If he’s shooting skeet then I’m Daffy Duck.

 

 

Skeet [clay disks of bright colors] are thrown by a machine from two towers erected to the right and left of the shooter. (There are other set ups like ones used for “sporting clays” but that isn’t represented in the White House photo release.) Usually, the skeet is thrown about ten or more feet above the ground.

 

 

 

The shooters are arranged in a semi-circle at various stations around the semi-circle. The “group” of shooters lines up at one stage and each shoot in turn. They then move to the next station and shoot again. Each spot is designed for the shooter to shoot above the horizon.

 

This is for safety and learning too that when in the field, a hunter never shoots a shotgun below the horizon. A small fact that Vice President Dick Cheney forgot when he wounded his hunting partner a few years ago.

 

Skeet are then thrown either from right to left or left to right or both at once. It is very challenging and the shooter either uses a double barrel shotgun or a semi automatic shotgun. Each shooter is limited to two shots.
